James Wan’s Aquaman seems to show no signs of slowing down as it stands strong among new film releases.
Aquaman was released in theaters on December 2018 and is still going strong while gaining more at the box office domestically. Perhaps January being an unpopular month for film releases has helped the film gain more audience members. Then again, there is no denying that Aquaman was indeed an incredible film with great action sequences and good storytelling. Now, Aquaman has passed another DC Films release, Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad‘s total domestic gross is $325.1 million while Aquaman‘s domestic haul currently sits at $325.2 million.
#Aquaman finished week 7 with $6.5M over the past 7 days raising its domestic #boxoffice total to $325.2M surpassing #SuicideSquad. Now ranks #60 on all-time list and #3 among #DCEU films behind #WonderWoman & #BatmanvSuperman. Will pass #BvS by #PresidentsDay.

Aquaman was a hit with audiences and has had many of them return to theaters to view the film again with some fans having shared that they’ve viewed it more than twice. The new report also suggests that Aquaman could surpass Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice domestically by President’s Day. At the worldwide box office, Aquaman is already the highest-grossing DC Comics movie of all time.
What do you think of the film passing Suicide Squad? Have you seen Aquaman more than once? Share your thoughts below!
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
Aquaman is now playing in theaters.
Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
